Description:

As seen on Investigation Discovery: the story of killer husband and father Robert Peernock from the New York Timesbestselling author of Impossible Odds.
 
Robert Peernock appeared to have the ideal life. Working as a pyrotechnics engineer and computer expert and coming home to his wife and daughter, Peernock projected the American dream. Even when he and his wife separated, it seemed amicable, just a small bump for the well-to-do family. But there was madness in his house: in private, Peernock was violent, subtly manipulative, and bordering on psychotic. But the horrifying details of his home life would only come to light after Peernock finally lost all control.
 
Peernock had come home, brutally beat both his wife and daughter, force fed them alcohol, and deliberately sent them to their death behind the wheel, staging it to look like a drunk driving accident. He didnt foresee that his daughter would survive, and even with years of abuse, her attempted murder, and horrendous injuries, he never anticipated that she would speak so powerfully against him.
 
Throughout his trial, Peernock claimed a massive government conspiracy against him. He hired and fired lawyers multiple times, deadlocking juries and spinning a web of lies. New York Times bestselling author Anthony Flacco chronicles the sensational trial and all the terror that preceded it, looking deep into the mind of a deranged killer whose American dream was a waking nightmare for those trapped within it.

From New Yorker staff writer David Grann, #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Lost City of Z, a twisting, haunting true-life murder mystery about one of the most monstrous crimes in American history

       
In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, they rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe.
      Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off. The family of an Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, became a prime target. Her relatives were shot and poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more and more members of the tribe began to die under mysterious circumstances.
      In this last remnant of the Wild Westwhere oilmen like J. P. Getty made their fortunes and where desperadoes like Al Spencer, the Phantom Terror, roamedmany of those who dared to investigate the killings were themselves murdered. As the death toll climbed to more than twenty-four, the FBI took up the case. It was one of the organizations first major homicide investigations and the bureau badly bungled the case. In desperation, the young director, J. Edgar Hoover, turned to a former Texas Ranger named Tom White to unravel the mystery. White put together an undercover team, including one of the only American Indian agents in the bureau. The agents infiltrated the region, struggling to adopt the latest techniques of detection.  Together with the Osage they began to expose one of the most chilling conspiracies in American history. 
      In Killers of the Flower Moon, David Grann revisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered in cold blood. Based on years of research and startling new evidence, the book is a masterpiece of narrative nonfiction, as each step in the investigation reveals a series of sinister secrets and reversals. But more than that, it is a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward American Indians that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long. Killers of the Flower Moon is utterly compelling, but also emotionally devastating.

Description:

AN ANTHOLOGY OF UNSOLVED MURDERS AND TRUE CRIMES WITH RELIGION AT THE FOREFRONT
THE MURDER OF SISTER MARGARET ANN PAHL
Before the satanic panic of the mid-80s and the accusations of the sexual abuse within the institution, the Catholic Church managed to cover up a murder in Toledo, Ohio. It shouldnt come as a surprise because they were a very powerful organization back in the day and would do anything to save their reputation, including manipulation. The murder victim was a nun, and the only suspect a priest.
Knowing how the public would react if this got out to the media, the higher-ups from the Catholic Church stopped the investigation completely, removing the accused from the area. However, it took a single letter from 2003 for this case to be re-examined in a new light. And after more than two decades later, the justice was finally served.
GWEN HENDRICKS
Gwen Hendricks was a seemingly normal Colorado housewife who began hearing voices telling her to kill her husband.

With a childhood steeped in religious teaching, Gwen began keeping a journal of her daily conversations with God who she claims told her that she needed to kill her husband in order to obtain proceeds from his life insurance.
MORMON KILLERS
With childhoods steeped in the teachings of the Mormon religion, both Israel Keyes and Arthur Gary Bishop would become some of the sickest serial killers in American history. Keyes criss-crossed the country during his reign of terror, killing both men and women. His true death count is unknown as he committed suicide before revealing any further information. Bishop was the archetypal child molester, luring young boys with promises of candy and toys. Like Keyes, his true victim count is unknown.

Description:

In these pages, a woman, a wife and mother, speaks the sorrows and oppressions of which she has been the witness and the victim. Harriet Beecher Stowe



Fanny Stenhouses famous work Tell it All is a withering attack on the practice of polygamy that developed as a prominent tenet of Mormon faith in the nineteenth century.

She begins her story with an account of how as a young woman her family had converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and how she had attracted the attention, and subsequently married, T. B. H. Stenhouse.

Living in Europe they were unaware of how their religion was developing in the Midwest and how the practice of plural marriage was beginning to become ever more prevalent among the members of their faith.

Responding to encouragement and counselling they eventually emigrated to the promised land of Utah and to their horror they began to learn that the rumors of Joseph Smiths polygamic revelation were true and that some of the church leadership, such as Brigham Young, had over fifty wives.

Tell it All provides fascinating insight into how the Mormon faith was developing in the mid-nineteenth century and how women such as Fanny were struggling to come to terms with doctrines such as polygamy.


The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints largely distanced itself from polygamy in the later-nineteenth century, much due to the work of women such as Fanny Stenhouse and others including a former wife of Brigham Young, Ann Eliza Young.

This book also uncovers some of the other darker moments of Mormon history such as the Mountains Meadows Massacre, in which the men and women of an emigrant wagon train were indiscriminately slaughtered by Mormons of the Nauvoo Legion.

added more details on polygamy, on Brigham Youngs life in polygamy, and on the Mountains Meadows Massacre The John Whitmer Historical Association Journal

Fanny Stenhouse was an early Mormon pioneer who, along with her husband T. B. H. Stenhouse, defected from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, largely due to their disagreements with the church about polygamy. Tell it All A Woman's Life in Polygamy was first published in 1872 and Fanny passed away in 1904.

Description:

THERESA FERRARA
New York in the 1970s was certainly one of the most crime driven cities in the world. The Lucchese family was one of The Five families that dominated the organized crime scene in this era. In fact, this family still holds great power today. Becoming involved with this family was never a matter of if you would run into problems, but rather when. Through countless, calculated murders, crimes, and street wars, this family soon came to be feared by everyone that wasnt made or an associate. Ultimately, the story of Theresa Ferrara is officially unsolved. What is fact and proven true is that Ferrara was involved and a major pawn in much of the Lucchese crime activity in the 70s. Her demise is one of great tragedy and a picture of what lengths the Lucchese family would go to in order to protect its goals.

Description:

Are women really the weaker sex?


When we hear about a Serial Killer, we never consider the sex, we would immediately assume a man...right? But that's not always the case! Females are for the most part, the loving and caring protectors of our species and the ones that are more susceptible to danger. However, they are in fact the most dangerous because they are the least suspected of the Serial Killers. Like their male counterparts, they show no remorse and have no mercy for their victims. Should we still call them the weaker sex?

"Women Who Kill is a journey into the minds of female serial killers--their motives, their acts, their thought process. Parker gives an overview and then delves into various stories about individual killers. I found myself horrified but also completely captivated."
- Bestselling author, Michele Scott
